NFL Media's Lance Zierlein predicts that Arkansas C Frank Ragnow will be selected in the first round.

Zierlein not only predicts Ragnow (6'5/312) to go in the first 32 selections, he projects the Razorback center to be the third offensive lineman off the board after Notre Dame's tandem of Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey. Ragnow's stock is clearly hot right now, and we could see a team like the Seahawks, Saints or Bengals adding him on Thursday.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that he's concerned about the feet of Arkansas C Frank Ragnow.

"Kind of a slow-footed guy," said the scout. "He’ll end up being a starter. Don’t love him. If he has to be one of the better talents on the team then they’re going to struggle." Ragnow has picked up first-round buzz as of late, and another scout told McGinn that the center is "versatile, big, smart and tough." We could see Ragnow selected on Thursday. if he doesn't go, he won't be on the board for very long on Friday.

Arkansas redshirt freshman DB Korey Hernandez will transfer.

Hernandez (5'11/175) initially joined the Razorbacks as a three-star recruit in the 2017 class. He redshirted his first year on campus. This spring, the Decatur, Georgia, native found himself on the outside looking in in terms of the depth chart, likely his impetus to move on from the program. Should Hernandez remain in the FBS with his transfer, he would be required to sit out the upcoming campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Arkansas G/C Frank Ragnow might be the main target for the Panthers at No. 24.

Per Norris, this would be a two birds with one stone situation. Ragnow could immediately start at guard and then work at center when Ryan Kalil gets injured or retires after the 2018 season. Ragnow could be the Cardinals or Bengals first round pick, so the Panthers might not have the opportunity to draft him at 24.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora passes along that he "continues to hear" that Arkansas C/G Frank Ragnow is being viewed as the top center prospect in the class.

For much of the draft process, we've seen Ohio State's Billy Price and Iowa's James Daniels trumpeted as the top center prospects in this class. Ragnow (6'5/312) appears to be putting some heat on those two as we speed toward the draft proper, though. La Canfora is of the opinion that the Arkansas rock is not going to be on the board past the Bengals, who own the No. 21 pick in the first round. The Patriots (No. 23), Panthers (No. 24) and Falcons (No. 26) are among the teams who have shown interest in Ragnow through visits and workouts this spring, should he make it past Cincinnati.

Arkansas C/G Frank Ragnow went through a private workout for the Patriots and Falcons.

Ragnow is going in the first round. That becomes more and more clear as the draft inches closer. The Bengals, Patriots, Vikings and Falcons are all strong possibilities. He could come in and start at guard or center for a number of teams.

Arkansas C/G Frank Ragnow visited the Panthers on Tuesday.

Ragnow is a darkhorse candidate for the No. 24 overall pick. Ragnow missed the Senior Bowl due to injury, but has moments of absolute dominance. Just turn on his game against Alabama and you see Ragnow push Da'Ron Payne off the ball snap after snap. The Panthers have a need at guard and a future need at center.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that three centers will be drafted by the middle of the second-round.

Pauline expects Iowa C James Daniels and Ohio State's Billy Price will go in the first round, and that while Price came in with the highest helium, Daniels could go first because of Price's pectoral issues. Pauline also hears that Arkansas C Frank Ragnow will go in the middle of the second round, and that the New England Patriots could be interested in him. Centers often go lower in the draft because of presumed positional value, but they've made a comeback over the last few years, and this appears to be a strong class.

Arkansas redshirt junior TE Will Gragg is expected to transfer.

He's expected to leave the program with his degree, so he'll be eligible for immediate playing time in 2018. The brother of NFL tight and former Razorback Chris Cragg, Will made five catches in 2017 and never established himself as a receiving option in the Arkansas offense. He'll look to change that for whatever team he plays for in 2018 this fall.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Arkansas C Frank Ragnow to Houston Texans OL Nick Martin.

Ragnow was on his way to becoming a potential day one selection before a high ankle sprain forced him to miss most of the year and also the NFL Scouting Combine. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound center is athletic enough to get to the second level and also has the pop and footwork to be a quality blocker both in the run and pass game. The injury is an obvious question mark, and his pad level isn't always consistent according to Zierlein. Ragnow likely goes on Day 2, and a team looking for a plug-and-play center could draft him in the second round.

Arkansas completed its 2019 season with a non-conference scheduling of Western Kentucky.

The Razorbacks will face off with the Hilltoppers in Fayetville on Nov. 9 in what will be a one-off showdown, rather than the somewhat more traditional home-and-home. This will be the first time that Arkansas and Western Kentucky have ever played. Beyond WKU, the rest of the non-con schedule for HC Chad Morris and crew in 2019 will consist of Portland State (Sept. 1), Colorado State (Sept. 14) and San Jose State (Sept. 21).

Arkansas redshirt senior WR Jared Cornelius (Achillies) is fully healthy for the start of spring practices.

Under new Hogs HC Chad Morris, Cornelius could be in line for a big season... if he stays healthy. Cornelius (5'11/212) has had difficulties staying on the field and out of the trainer's room.
Mar 3 - 5:01 PM

Arkansas sophomore RB Chase Hayden (leg) is healthy for spring practice.

Hayden (5'11/185) sustained a fractured leg in mid-October which ended up sidelining him for the remainder of the past season. Prior to that unfortunate waylaying, he had rushed for 326 yards (5.3 YPC) and four touchdowns across seven games played. New Razorbacks HC Chad Morris has some pieces to play around with at running back as he boots up spring practice on Thursday. In addition to Hayden, Arkansas also boasts Devwah Whaley and T.J. Hammonds in the running backs room. JUCO transfer Rakeem Boyd could make some noise as well. Athlon Sports' Ryan Wright sees Hayden and Hammonds as perhaps the cleanest fits for Morris' spread offense, but we expect this to be a fluid situation through the summer.

Arkansas HC Chad Morris says redshirt sophomore QB Cole Kelley will begin the spring working with the starters.

However, Morris stopped far short of declaring Kelley the starter, saying he’ll split the snaps evenly between two quarterbacks and that there is not a definite starter at this time. Interestingly, Morris tossed out Daulton Hyatt, but not Ty Storey, suggesting that perhaps Storey isn't seen as a serious player for the job. Kelley was in legal hot water recently, pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated earlier this month.

Arkansas received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 DT Trevis Hopper.

Hopper (6'2/260) may "only" be a three-star recruit at this time, but he has the offers of a five-star player. He chooses the Razorbacks over offers from schools like Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Clemson and Miami, to just name an elite few. He ranks as the 23rd best defensive tackle in the class in 247 Sports composite rankings, and 437th overall. Don't be surprised if Hopper ends up a four-star player before the recruiting cycle ends.
